Author and illustrator Kathryn Otoshi returned to Glenview on April 28th, to present the beautiful handprint mural created with over 800 handprints of Glenview students and staff. The mural was created in honor of her story "Beautiful Hands" sharing the message of treating others with kindness & respect, and that it just takes "ONE" person to stand up to make a difference. Ms. Otoshi’s presentation and special gift was made possible by the Orange County Department of Education. Glenview thanks both for their time & contribution! The beautiful bird will be hung from Glenview's multi-purpose room as a symbol for Respect for All & Anti-Bullying and Character Development and Education taking place through the P.B.I.S. program.
Bulldog Run & Family Fitness Day
Glenview's Bulldog Run expanded efforts this year to a Family Fitness Day where students and their families were invited to participate in fun fitness activities, such as an Obstacle Course & Zumba Dance Station led by Principal Ms. Ramos and 5th and 6th grade student leaders. Top Runners from each grade level were awarded a Bulldog Run medal! Glenview thanks the PTA and many parent volunteers who helped make the day possible, tallying laps, leading activities, and joining in on the fun, including the popsicle treat students enjoyed at the end of the day!
PBIS Rootbeer Float Party
In April, 200 Glenview students in grades Pre-K-6 earned a spot at the PBIS Rootbeer Float Party with Principal Ramos, for showing respect, responsibility and safety at school. Thanks to the support of Glenview's PTA, students enjoyed hand-scooped old-fashion rootbeer floats by wonderful parent volunteers and a surprise visit from our beloved Glenview Bulldog mascot.
Read Across America Day
Glenview celebrated Read Across America Day with a Community Read Aloud, with guest readers visiting classrooms and speaking with students about the importance of reading. Art Teacher Valerie Frank, Lunch Clerk, Devon Pipen, and Glenview parent & author, Richard Barna, read to classrooms and shared the joy of great book! Parents also joined students dressed in their pajamas on the field for a school-wide Reading on the Green event! Sixth grade buddies read with pals in the primary grades, and parents and children created a comfy reading picnic out on the grass in celebration of Dr. Suess's birthday. Many thanks to our wonderful Glenview PTA who provided every student with a Dr. Suess bookmark!
